John Wick: Chapter 4

Yes siree, the stories get stupider and the fights get longer – and in this case the film doesn’t weigh in much short of 3 hours. It’s all the quasi-balletic yet ruthlessly efficient John Wick vs. endless legions of bad

Everything Everywhere All at Once

Well, that was an antidote to Marvel films, wasn’t it? Best multiverse story outside of Rick & Morty.  Bloody staggering.  Love love loved it.

Deadpool 2

It was a long night – but once you rewatch Deadpool it’s foolish not to play on. Not sure if the streamed version of this was different to the last one I watched, or whether my recollections differ due to


Rewatched this purely because I don’t sleep any more and have an infant to supervise. Deadpool continues to be the only Marvel property I give a monkey’s about.  Just a sweary, sarcastic joy to behold.

The Matrix Resurrections

Unfair to write this up as I suspect I slept through a substantive chunk of it. I thought the first 30-45 minutes were an interesting-enough bit of self-reflection about the decreasing returns in endlessly mining a franchise for sequels, and
